Summary

The prehistoric population of the Los Alamitos Bay area made significant use of local shell fish resources. Using records of shellfish species found in shell middens, information about habitats for shell fish species, sea level records for the Holocene and a detailed topographic model of the region, one can examine how prehistoric use of the landscape changed as a function of the post-Pleistocene environment.
